Nigeria to introduce mobile technology for teachers

Nigeria, under the flagship of the National Teacher’s Institute (NTI), has mapped out strategies to use mobile technologies to update the knowledge of teachers and strengthen their competencies.

This statement was made by NTI Director-General, Dr. Aminu Ladan Sharehu at the end of a workshop organized by UNESCO in conjunction with Nokia.

The workshop which was tagged, “Mobile Technologies and Teacher Development,” held at UNESCO’s office in Paris, France.

According to the DG, four pilot projects will be launched soon to explore how mobile technologies can be used to support teachers in Nigeria and three other countries – Mexico, Pakistan and Senegal.

The NTI Director-General remarked that these projects are solely aimed at strengthening the competencies of teachers in the region.By Charlie Frip
